Customer Of The Week!!!

Written by on June 24th 2014

It’s a family affair! This trio was just too cute, so we made all three of them the Customers of the Week!!
Meet Kathy, Curt, and their little bruiser, Wil!

Curt has been coming to Eye Spy for frames for some time now. He’s gathered quite the collection of Anne et Valentin frames. His “Factory Eight” frames (pictured here) are his most recent addition. Since Curt developed such an appreciation for the designer, it was only natural that Kathy would end up being just as inspired!

When the family came in to pick up Curt’s glasses, our Anne at Valentin trunk show just happened to be in full swing at Eye Spy. Kathy hadn’t purchased glasses in years, but fell in love with the “Lou” frame in chocolate brown with pink accents. She decided that she needed to look as good as her husband, but needed a very comfortable frame. This titanium frame fit the bill…and will stand up to the wear and tear that certain toddlers can impose on glasses;-)

A special honorable mention goes to the little guy, sporting his super fly Julbo sunglasses. Maybe when he’s all grown up, he’ll join the ranks and carry on the Anne et Valentin frame tradition!

Our Customer of the Week is Aspen!!!
Wow…6 year-old Aspen looks adorable in her new Julbo Frames!  She was visiting from Colorado when she stopped by Eye Spy and had to have these pink beauties.
Julbo frames are perfect for children because of their impact- and fall-resistant designs.  With all the fun colors to choose from…kids can’t resist putting them on =)
Now through September 30th, kids lenses are 50% off, when you purchase a complete pair with Super High Vision EX3 anti-reflective coating!  EX3 anti-reflective coating is highly recommended for children because it is extremely scratch-resistant and even outperforms glass lenses.  Come on in before the beginning of the school year and save!!!

Don’t talk to strangers, wear your sunglasses, look both ways before crossing the street

Written by on April 24th 2010

The summer sun may not be here yet, but it is lurking right around the corner.

I know that many of us are looking forward to picnics by the lake, concerts in Millennium Park, and bike rides on a warm afternoon, that’s the joy of living in Chicago!

And, of course, many of you are preparing to stock up on sunscreen, yes?

But what about sunglasses?


According to a recent article in the Miami Herald, 78% of parents make sure their kids are wearing sunscreen (awesome!) but only 39% make sure their kids are wearing sunglasses (wha?!).

The eyes of children are extremely sensitive to the sun, making sufficient eyewear a necessity.

Check out the article here to learn more about the importance of sun protection for your child’s eyes.

At Eye Spy, we carry Julbo sunglasses for kids. Julbo‘s kids frames have shock-resistant lenses that offer 100% protection against UVA, B and C rays.

(Here’s the url for the article: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/04/20/1588038/parents-not-providing-adequate.html#ixzz0lnZPLwmw )

And a reminder–for the whole month of April, Eye Spy is celebrating a GREEN SCENE. If you ride your bike or the CTA to Eye Spy, you get 10% off a pair of Rx specs. If you donate an old pair of glasses, you receive $25 off a new pair of Rx frames! So come on by and celebrate a greener earth with Eye Spy!

Like father like son

Written by on April 5th 2010

I think it’s true when people say that great style runs in the family. I mean, check out Jason and Izzy!


When Jason was in the store picking up his new Anne et Valentin frame (what a cool shape!), his son, Izzy, put on some Julbo sunglasses and POW! Insta-cool. He’s like a mini-James Dean!

How could we resist? With style like this, we just had to make Jason and Izzy our CUSTOMERS OF THE WEEK!

Congrats, guys! You’re our Customers of the Week and our new style icons!
